And Now For A Poem

Across the Forever Sky (07/08/2010)

The barn caught fire in the middle of the night,
the flames, high enough to top the tree lines,

you could see that warm orange glow for miles,
it's rafters wrapped in yellow arms, engulfed;

Their noses perked at whiffs of burning wood,
they might recall a memory of an autumn night,
the cool darkness full of its smokey evidence
of some hidden warmth nestled to the hearth

of souls that gather 'round; Burning with awe.

The barn ignited in the drought of a dead summer
as markets were closing along the dusty road
to some other land, that was full, that was fresh,
by long strides of a whispering sun, sipping doom,

etching itself out along the course of all our hope,
where this land once provided to us, existence,
betrayed in those autumn nights, sheparding ill,
and the echoes of much deliberation and screams;

the barn was now a vibrant crimson red, lashing
its forked tongue tendrils across the forever sky.

Working on some cute characters.

I recently challenged myself to draw one cute character a day while I eat my lunch. I am using this opportunity to improve my ability to ink with a brush (while preparing and eating my lunch). Being such a pen person I have noticed over time alot of the people I really admire ink or inked with a brush, so... i'd like to be better at it. I am certainly getting faster at it, it's fun. You can try to guess which three are swiped poses.

Cracked Out- Masters of Ceremony

The 1986 hit Cracked Out about being Cracked Out is a huge hit at my house - it went platinum in the kitchen alone. Listen for my favorite part, when the girl says 'all the freaks do it" hahahaaa thats a crazy sentence and an even crazier sentiment. I want to be a freak and do what all the freaks are doing..... Freaks Come Out At Night, Superfreak all my experience up till now led me to believe no girl aspired to be a freak, but this song set me straight. Some chicks wanna be freaky and smoke that crack. One of them is in this song and gosh darn it she is great.

Tanner Helps Record a Demo

Heres what happens when you have a 2 year old in the room when you are trying to record a demo. He couldn't be denied he had to be inbetween the people and the microphone and any idea of moving him was met with the exultations you hear.

The International Meet - BrownHaven GreenHaven Demo

From the ever elusive The International Meet comes a new demo from a soon to be studio recorded ep.
This seems very unlike them, lo-fi live to cassette has always been like caviar to them. But Stamford indie superstar Chris 'skeezix' Trudeau has, upon hearing their demos, agreed to produce and engineer some sessions with them at his cavernous and well stocked Westhill Puppy Garage studio.

ROTSSB Demos Part 2

Two more candidates for my in-progress covers collection.
I love all these songs and It's a good chance to dismantle them, recreate them and hopefully learn all the secrets they have inside.
